Learning Common Law
The reason why knowing common law is important is because it helps you to protect yourself against tyranny and abuse and it provides remedy when your rights are trespassed. In any event, understanding basic and fundamental laws is one of the most important life skills that you can have. Common law and constitutional law principles are universally recognized and are ‘The Peoples’ law which provides instructions and limits to public servants. This is separate and distinct from ‘Legal’ (legislative) ‘code’ which impose onerous requirements in a ‘top down’ approach to governance where government controls the people and extracts their life substance.
If ever a time should come when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in government, our country will be in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin.
Knowledge will forever govern ignorance, and a people who mean to be their own governors, must arm themselves with the power knowledge gives.
